^ #1. URL doesn't work.

#2. Hopefully that was a joke. No one likes No-luck Cyclic order.

No one likes No-luck Cyclic? Since when? It's quickly become my preferred format... allows for far greater strategy.

Well, it's nice in that it's cyclic. However, there's the whole issue of the order being determined based on who picks first. Most 0% SR strategic templates I've encountered haven't been on No-luck cyclic for that reason.

I wish Fizzer implemented ChrisCMU's alternative suggestion- weighted random turn order (which makes it extremely unlikely to get 3 first moves in a row, but still leaves a luck factor in).

Order is determined by who picks fastest, not necessarily first.. .. .

True. Thanks for catching that. In either case, I don't like how it places an incentive to have faster picks.

the problem as I understood it, is not the incentive to have faster picks, but the incentive to *delay* your picks..
